Kudos to Regina King
I was just 9 or 10 when 227 hit the airwaves and it was a Saturday night favorite of mine. Jackee got all the attention when the show was on, but the real actress to emerge was was little Brenda played by Regina King. Regina is an amazing actress who has stunned me with her performances in movie after movie, tv show after tv show. Even when she is playing second fiddle to Sandra Bullock or Reese Witherspoon she is always a stand out. It is great to see her back on tv though. Firstly because we can see her talent every week. But secondly Southland has given something to Regina not all of her movies have done, which is to give her a part equal to her talent. Regina shines as Lydia and if you have not checked out Southland yet, give it a shot! I had no interest in the beginning but caught the third episode and am now hooked. Kudos to Regina King!
